By Dave Graybill
I was going to be away most of the week at meetings, and the only open window I had to do anything fishing wise was on Monday afternoon. So, a fly rod was tossed in the back of my truck and away I went to Rocky Ford Creek near Ephrata. On my way through Ephrata I saw Darc Knobelā€™s truck parked in front of his shop, the Desert Fly Angler. I just has to stop and say hi. It was good to talk to Darc and to look over the fly selection he has for Rocky Ford. The visit was short as the stream and its big trout were waiting, and my time was short. There are many good fishing spots along the one-mile long access to Rocky Ford, but I like the upper end. My rod was already rigged with an indicator and small Scud from my last visit and that was what I tossed out. On my second cast the indicator bobbed, and I hooked a small, but very fat rainbow. After I released the fish and one more it was evident that there were a bunch of these new plants in the stream, and if I stayed I was likely to catch more of them, so I headed home.
All I could hook was small recent planted rainbow in the spot I was fishing on Wednesday at Rocky Ford.
